Default HC wishlist ... to replace Cowher?

I, like all Steeler fans, am still coping with the 2-6 start. My mood runs through the entire emtional spectrum on, what seems to be, a weekly basis. I am not sure of anything, when it comes to the black and gold, but as this season approached and past the mid-point, I am becoming convinced that Billy Cowher is NOT coming back.

Now before I even begin to process whether or not I want him to come back next year or I would rather have the organization start fresh and really put this season behind us when it is finally (and mercifully) over.

But I am interested to hear who you folks out there would like to see take over as HC of the Steelers. Realistic ideas would be nice... I think we have as good of a chance of old Lombardi heimself coming back from the grave to coach our boys as we do of getting Parcells or Jimmy Johnson or a high profile college coach (Carroll, Tressel, etc).

So do you wanna keep it in house with Whiz or Grimm..... are we any better by hiring those guys?

Do we give it to Lebeau... in order to maintain or effective defensive scheme?

Do we go the "Rooney way" and hire some young inexperienced coordinator and start building?

I think we have a team that is talented enough to contend for a world championship year in and year out.... if they are prepared and motivated. I would be dissappointed to see the ownership go get a young unproven inexperienced coach for this particular team. That would be like giving the keys to your brand new porsche to the 16 yr old who has been driving for a week.

There is one guy out there who more than likely will be available at years end. Here are his qualifications:
- multiple division titles
- led his team to the franchise's only super bowl appearance
- multiple playoff appearances
- still fairly young
- is respected by players on his own team and opposing ones
- if he is out of a job at years end he wont be unemployed for long


How about Jeff Fisher?

I have suggested Mike tomlin. Great young mind 34 years old and he comes from great coaching tree that has had lovie smith, marvin lewis, hermand edwards, rod marinelli and monte kiffin. I dont see them going after a big named colleage coach. And as far as hiring internally let me rattle off some names of coordinators that left the steelers to become head coaches. Dom capers, chan gailey, dick lebeau, mike mularkey, jim haslett. None of which had sucess once they left. I think we should go outside the way we did with cowher

If he were available how about Jon Gruden with the Tampa Bay Bucs?
